Gigi Hadid has something to say about her body that'll make you ~cheer~ for her

Killin' it.

Remember when Gigi Hadid absolutely slayed the world last year with this epic open letter about body shaming?!

Gigi penned the emotional post during Fashion Week, after copping a lot of flack, stating: "I'm human, and I’m not going to lie, I did let the negativity get to me a little. No, I don’t have the same body type as the other models in shows. No, I don’t think I’m the best at any given show. Yes, I want to have a unique walk but I also know I have to improve."

"I represent a body image that wasn’t accepted in high-fashion before, and I’m very lucky to be supported by designers, stylists, and editors that I am: ones that know this is fashion, it’s art; it can never stay the same. It’s 2015."

WELL, it's now 2016 and Gigi is still one of the most in-demand supermodels around, so it's safe to say she's doing something right. In a recent Vogue podcast she explained why she felt the need to post the epic letter.

"That was the journal entry that I thought would help people and let people know that they can speak up and defend themselves," she explained. "Everyone is affected by the pressures that come from being on social media. We're all human. I'll never say that it doesn't affect me. Sometimes it's harder than others."​

She continued: "​I never didn't like my body [growing up]. I was very athletic. I was proud of why my body was the way it was... you do everything you can to be healthy and do what makes you feel good and feel happy. That's just always how I've looked at it."

Girl knows what's up.
